Did Technological Visionaries Teleport from Other Universes?

In a volume published in volume 224 of academic press Springer’s series “Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems” titled Digital Transformation Technology, the proceedings of a conference called the “Second World Conference on Internet of Things: Applications & Future (ITAF 2020)”, there’s a paper titled “Teleportation; Next Leap to Outer Space” . Here is the abstract:

Going to space and in particular to the moon was the distinguished accomplishment of mankind for the twentieth century; however, teleportation and in particular, human teleportation is going to be the greatest achievement of all human being knowledge combined for the twenty-first century. The simple scientific definition of teleportation is when an object or a person be transported through a machine or a device and ends up reappearing at a different place. It all starts from the human brain which is very complex organ and in particular the human consciousness which is considered mathematically complicated. Consequently, many questions arise, could the human consciousness be decoded and mapped, could it be transported to an android or an avatar along with human’s mind thoughts, is the quantum mechanics and computing is the methodology to achieve teleportation. On the other hand, the visionaries who changed our technological history might have been humans have crossed to other universes or they could be teleported humans from other universes. Lastly, if the human teleportation is a possibility, will it face any physical or moral challenges. Significant questions indeed and fortunately, this research paper intend to answer all of them. It is worth it to mention that Albert Einstein claimed that humans are theoretically capable of time travel or being teleported.

The book containing this contribution to human knowledge and the bright future of the Internet of Things can be yours for just CHF 212, or you read just this chapter for CHF 24.95. I’m way too cheap to read it, but those who have say it suggests that Nikola Tesla and Steve Jobs, among others, teleported from a parallel universe where, one presumes, people are more creative than in our universe, which seems constrained to only produce “research” like this.

The fixation on Tesla seems to be highest among the scientifically illiterate, but it continues to amaze me. Tesla had interesting ideas, and we’ve actually achieved wireless power (for instance) only to figure out how stunningly inefficient it is, etc.

I reviewed Bernard Carlson’s biography, Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age, in 2016 (link is to my review). Tesla’s work, prior to and through the Niagara power station, formed the foundation of our modern power generation, distribution, and electrification of industry. The AC induction motor, split-phase motor, and polyphase power transmission system, all Tesla inventions, are everywhere today. Doubtless, had he not invented them, somebody else would have, but the fact is that he did invent them and made the connections with industrialists to bring them to market. If he had had better financial advisors, he might have become one of the wealthiest men of his time from his patents and license deal with Westinghouse on the induction motor.

The New York Times wrote in 1895:

Even now, the world is more apt to think of him as a producer of weird experimental effects than as a practical and useful inventor. Not so the scientific public or the business men. By the latter classes Tesla is properly appreciated, honored, perhaps even envied. For he has given to the world a complete solution of the problem which has taxed the brains and occupied the time of the greatest electro-scientists for the last two decades—namely, the successful adaptation of electrical power transmitted over long distances.

In his subsequent career he went around the bend and advocated crackpot schemes which made no sense based on any understanding of electromagnetism. It is for this, of course, that he is admired by the crystal and unicorn crowd.
